Sailor on the Longest Day

Kim Wyman, Secretary of State, relives D-Day with Narozonick at his home in Olympia, Wash. "Veterans like George are humble, but they are true heroes," Wyman says. "To learn from their stories is a gift."

"Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity."

Coming soon to a ballot near you
May 15 marked the last day for candidates to file for office. As opposed to most primaries, this year's ballot carries several contested races.

For starters, John Clifford, who owns the namesake hardware store near the corner of Cottage Avenue and Woodring, will seek a rematch of sorts in the race for Port of Chelan County Commissioner, District 1.

In March of 2014, Clifford applied to replace Craig Larsen when the latter resigned to take a job elsewhere in the Port. The Port picked Ron Johnston-Rodriguez, but Johnston-Rodriguez has decided not to run.

Roundabout plans get boost from council
The Cashmere City Council voted 4-1 to continue with its plan to build a roundabout near the intersection of Cottage Avenue and Aplets Way.

Council members David Sherman, Bob Abramoski, Skip Moore and David Erickson voted in favor. Council member Jim Fletcher voted against, stating that if people voice their opposition to the roundabout, council should wait.

"There was enough concern expressed by enough people that maybe we were in too much of a hurry," Fletcher said. "That we are letting construction schedule push it or other things and we hadn't connected with constituents. We had an opportunity to take a little more time and have a little better conversation."

Two Cashmere juniors headed to Girls' State
Two 11th-graders from Cashmere High School will represent the school in the annual Evergreen Girls' State civic education and government training program in Ellensburg this June.

Olivia Abbott and Amanda Bobbitt will learn the ins and outs of city, state and state government during a weeklong camp at the Central Washington University campus.

"You go and you basically learn how the government works," Abbott said. "You get a chance to act in the roles, like you get elected into office, and you learn how to do it all."

Bobbitt was not available for comment. She and Abbott applied for a spot on Girls' State through the American Legion Auxiliary. Abbott's sister Aubrey attended the program about seven years ago.

Olivia said her sister helped convince her to attend but the decision was personal as well. She relished the opportunity to go with someone else from her hometown.

Pinewood Derby, a rolling, racing good time
The three children roared as the cars zoomed by. Their refrain was identical, and familiar to anyone who has ever attended an event where humans and/or machines race.

"Go! Go! Go! Go!" they shouted in unison.

Not one of them was older than 5 years old. Not one of them was a Boy Scout or a Cub Scout, and not one of them could spell Pinewood Derby if asked, and yet, there they were, lungs at full mast, watching blocks of wood on wheels speed before their eyes.

Baseball clinches district title
The Cashmere Bulldogs' baseball team shellacked their archrival Cascade Kodiaks 11-1 to earn tickets to state for the seventh consecutive year.

The Kodiaks were one run away from not getting mercy-ruled, and actually looked like they had scored the second run they needed to stretch the game past the fifth inning. However, their baserunner did not step on home plate and was called out on the Bulldogs' appeal.

Cascade went home and Cashmere will play this Saturday in Eastmont against the winner of Colville versus Deer Park, which played last Saturday, had a rainout, and were scheduled to finish the game last Monday, Cashmere's Head Coach Jeff Carlson wrote in an email.

Results for Colville-Deer Park weren't available for press time.

Track and field team earns league title
Cashmere's track and field team won the Caribou Trail League championships in both boys and girls last week in Peshastin.

The Bulldog girls scored points --finished fifth or better-- in 17 of the 18 events. In eight events, two or more girls scored points, wrote Head Coach Jeff Kenoyer in an email.

Elli Kimes set new league records in the pole vault. The 4x200 team of Jessica Parker, Ellen Sangster, Kimes and Breanne Knishka also set a CTL record. Seven events finished with Cashmere girls in first place, including Knishka's 800-meter mark of 2:31 minutes, a new personal record for her.

In addition, Cashmere girls finished 30 points ahead of second-place Cascade.

Softball clinches league championship
Cashmere's softball team did not even have to play Friday to win the Caribou Trail League Championship.

A split between Omak and Cascade in a doubleheader clinched the title for the Bulldogs, which had last played three days earlier, a 12-5 pounding of the Kodiaks at home.

"It has been a good season for us and I am really proud of the girls," wrote head coach Bob Van Lith in an email.

The Bulldogs still have two more games before the postseason begins. Tuesday, Cashmere hosted the Chelan Goats, with the Goats playing as the home team. Twenty-three hours later, Cashmere travels to Chelan, with first pitch scheduled for 3 p.m.

Results for either game weren't available prior to press time.
